Hi,

I'm not sure how it seats 7 with the two front bucket seats, and there are 3 sizes of batteries -- the 50K version may have 200 miles? The 300 mile version is ~$60K, I think.

Two rear facing children. It should really be seats seven*.

And since there are no EPA tests for battery range, I am tempted to think the range claims are inflated as well.

Hi,

The common way of naming this would be 5+2, I think. Like the iQ is 3+1, or many sports cars are 2+2.

Lots of new details on the Tesla Model S:

Check out the three videos showing all sorts of closeup looks at the (near?) production Model S.

...well, it sure LOOKS worth $50K...and certainly $10K better LOOKING than the Volt™.

It's certainly the best looking of all the current electric cars. (Then again, when the competition includes the catfish-like Nissan Leaf, that's not really all that hard to accomplish.) I still will believe that the Model S will provide the performance and range Tesla touts it as having when I see it. They have a history of promising much more than they can deliver.

I hate it. Just the idea of a seven passenger car, to start with. And then why on earth sell it for less than half the price of the Roadster?

They seem to be pretty accurate. I mean, if the Leaf can get ~100 miles w/ a ~25kWh pack the S should be able to get ~300 miles with a ~100 kWh pack.
